quite a few updates

first of all those astute readers would have seen the update i did to HellaBoss yesterday concerning the class i'm teaching (gasp!) next tuesday. since then, i've taken it down however to make room of item x.

item x is a take on dan cederholm's round-corner backgrounds from both his (terrific) book, a list apart article, and via a chat we had the other day. his demos are terrific, but seem to only cover fixed-width background images. i was keen on getting it to work if the masthead in question stretches the full width of the screen in a liquid way.

so, after some talking with dan the man, i went ahead last night and did it up right. to come: the floating div needs to be hacked in ie6.

have a look!

in other news, i hit the college and picked up my book for the course. it's a great book - i've got another book by the same publisher on unix for mac which is a terrific resource. i waited in line for about 30 minutes at the registrar's office until someone asked what i was there for. after i told them i was going to be teaching (which got a lot of "huh? you're a youngin'" stares from other line-holders), i got taken out of the line to a special spot to talk to someone right away.

after a bit of running around (i spent ~1.5 hours at the college), i finally got my book and saw the classroom (windows comps, ie 6, ns 4.08, corel paintshop image softs). don't worry, i've already asked the course controller to hook up the lab with photoshop and firefox, but not sure that they will be able to. this is going to be an interesting class!

Hey,

Looking good... Was I right about that book, or was I right about that book? ;)

I've got a similar take on the way I went about creating the fluid header. I'll try and get mine posted tonight.
